The Lowestoft Sea Front Air Festival
Each year hundreds of people gather in the British town of Lowestoft to enjoy the Lowestoft Sea Front Air Festival. This enjoyable family event is run by a “not-for-profit” company and so access to the festival is free, though visitors are asked to make a £1 contribution to ensure that the show can continue to take place and can improve with each passing year.
Situated in the most easterly town in Great Britain, the Lowestoft Sea Front Air Festival enjoys a truly picturesque setting. It is also an easy destination to reach and can be accessed by road, rail, air and sea – so there is no excuse for you to miss it! The fantastic beaches that dot this unspoilt stretch of coastline are perfect for festival activities and family fun, and visitors to the festival can settle down and enjoy two exciting days of non-stop festivities. Young and old will delight in the fantastic military displays and exhibitions that have been organized for festival-goers and simulators for adults and children will bring the dream of flying to life in a fun and safe way. Funfairs and stalls will also provide other forms of entertainment, while a wonderful variety of food stalls will offer virtually every imaginable delight for your palate, including fish and chips and yummy home-made fudge. You will also find the sea front filled with traders of all sorts, so you can expect to find plenty of interesting goodies to purchase while you are watching the airshow. And, as if all that wasn’t enough, there will also be plenty of music and entertainment at the local bars and hotels, so when the planes start to disappear from the sky at night, you can head out for a great night’s entertainment!
It is important to remember that all the activities and events enjoyed during the festival are the result of a lot of hard work by volunteers, sponsors and charities, who work together with the local council and each other to ensure that this fantastic annual event continues to be an enjoyable one. Because of this, the making of voluntary donations are strongly encouraged and you might feel the desire to contribute more than just the suggested amount before you leave the festival after an enjoyable weekend. Of course, the highlight of the event is all the airplanes and visitors can expect to enjoy four hours of amazing flying displays on both days of the events. You can also expect to see the likes of the Red Arrows, The Blades, John Taylor, Team Guinot Wingwalkers, the Tigers Parachute Display Team and much, much more. So make sure that you get down to Lowestoft on the 24th and 25th of July to make the most of this fantastic annual event!
